Mercedes Benz C-Class Owner's Manuals
Mercedes-Benz S-Class – rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive sedan class “D”. The fifth generation of the model (index W206). The premiere of the sedan took place on February 23, 2021 in an online format.
Built on the second generation of the MRA II modular platform, the C-Class W206 has grown significantly in size. Now its length is 4751 mm (the increase was 65 mm), the width without mirrors is 1810 mm (10 mm added), while the height, on the contrary, decreased to 1438 (by 9 mm). Due to the windshield and passenger compartment moved back, the wheelbase increased to 2865 mm (by 25 mm) and the extended track (19 mm in front and 48 mm behind), the sedan retains the “thoroughbred” proportions of high-end cars with relatively modest compared to them sizes.
The same effect of visual analogy with the S-Class W223 is achieved due to the optics similar to the brand’s flagship: the front one is narrower than before and is distinguished by a signature diode stroke; rear – with a pointed inner section, now divided into two parts between the body and the trunk lid. As before, the shape and pattern of the grille and bumpers, as well as the rims, are directly dependent on the chosen exterior styling package (standard, Avantgarge, AMG Line).
In the spirit of the flagship sedan, the C-Class interior is also completely redrawn: with a separate dashboard tablet without any visor (10.25 or 12.3 inches) and a vertical central display of the MBUX system (9.5 or 11.9 inches), slightly turned here in the direction of the driver. MBUX itself plays the role of the car’s nervous system: it recognizes not only a fingerprint, but also the voice of a specific driver, responds to voice commands even more accurately, all kinds of music services are integrated into it, and MBUX can even be connected to control Smart Home functions.
A fairly wide range of engines survived unification, and now all C-Class power plants belong to the FAME (Family of Modular Engines) modular family. All of them have four cylinders, all are equipped with a mild-hybrid electric makeweight EQ Boost (provides an additional 20 hp and 200 Nm). Petrol C 180 and C 200 are equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine with a return of 170 hp. With. and 204 l. With. respectively. Petrol C 300 is equipped with a 2.0-liter engine with 258 hp. With. As for the diesel unit, this is a 2.0-liter engine, which in the C 220 d version develops 200 hp. s., in the C 300 d version – already 265 forces. Regardless of the motor, the car is equipped with a 9G-Tronic torque converter.
An alternative to these engines are plug-in hybrid power plants based on both gasoline and diesel internal combustion engines. They are equipped with electric motors developing 129 hp. with., and batteries with a capacity of 24.5 kWh, which allow you to drive on electric traction for about 100 km.
With the change of generation, the C-Class suspension has undergone a complete modernization: a four-link scheme is installed in front, and a multi-link scheme in the rear. For a surcharge for the sedan, adaptive Active Body Control dampers with three modes are available, or a sports suspension with stiffer settings and a 15 mm lowering. Vehicles with a hybrid powertrain get air rear suspension by default.
Among the optional equipment available for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, it is worth noting the Digital Light head optics (1.3 million mirrors in each headlight, capable of projecting warnings on the roadway), the MBUX function that allows you to create an additional reality (the image from the front camera is supplemented with tips) and steering rear axle (rear wheels rotate up to 2.5 degrees). A full package of electronic assistants is also available for the sedan, including Distronic adaptive cruise control, lane keeping and automatic lane change systems, active blind spot monitoring, etc.
